Foskito: Let's see what Sony Northrop is about to say next.

This time he will say too bad it does not have Canon's or Sony's logos.

He will always find something negative to say about Nikon.

Mistral75: Oddly enough, there are = = two = = 400mm S-line lenses on the roadmap, including the Nikkor Z 400mm f/2.8 TC VR S, the development of which was announced today.

Both are same, this is just the image of the 400 lens.

Slow but steady, good for Nikon, I hope they will release a cheaper Z FX body.

Mortal Lion: You can't beat Fujifilm if you don't have the lenses Nikon. Nobody but Nikon makes Z-mount AF lenses so third party is not a route.

All Nikon Z lenses can work on the APS-C format, and now they have plenty.

Einride: These both look lovely. I love that they went plastic for maximum lightness. I have a feeling that they will perform really well too. Probably on par with the more expensive Canon RF 1.8 lenses and Sony’s and Sigma’s compact f1.8 lenses.
Very smart differentiation by Nikon. You get either maximum lightness and affordability or you step up to S class and get pro level f1.8 lenses that stand up to anything at any price.

Or you get super lenses like the 50/1.2S which is larger and heavier than the competition but also offers the ultimate in performance.

@Daft Punk
People used to say the same thing I guess about the SLR before the introduction of DSLR, now people use SLR just for fun.

And why you are saying that canon's 1.8 lenses are not good ? actually they are pretty good, as good as Nikons difference in real world is minimal, and they are cheaper and smaller too. And that is what I want to say, Nikon does not offer the cheaper or the best, they offer an okay system.

Canon & Sony managed to offer you both, the best bodies and lenses while they have also in their line up the cheapest lenses and bodies too, they give you a choice to upgrade later on, while Nikon is just catching up and not a leader anymore.

And that makes me afraid that maybe in future they will be out of the game and all this investment in their new system will be to waste on the long run.

Kazzaz: Not that I am important, but I am afraid they will lose me very soon to Canon and I guess I am not alone.
I've always used to like Nikon and their offerings and I still do like their color science very much. Just couple of years back they used to be on top of the game, however, now I feel they are always Okay, because :

1. They are not the best on the market to make you go and invest in their new system.
2. They do not offer something extra over the competition, in many cases they are offer less.
3. They do not offer the cheapest body or lenses either.
4. They are not open for 3rd party lenses.

They became just okay, which I believe is not enough for many to do the switch yet.

@rbach44
Everyone will go to mirrorless sooner or later.

Robert Seso: Unfortunately, it requires registration to even try it out, so no, I won’t even bother.

Guys, he is talking about that they for sure will take back information from you, this is not free, this is creepy as hell.

On article Nikon Z6 II and Z7 II coming October 14 (926 comments in total)

This is Nikon chance to get back as a leader not a company who catchup with competition.

It is nice to see them introduce 2 cameras a time, that's good too.

The best plan is to wait till 2021, because we will have a better lens lineup to choose from and most probably they will release the Z6 II by that time solving its current shortcomings.

endofoto: We are all discussing about mirrorless, yet best innovative lenses are still produced for DSLR. Lens companies will decide whether DSLR will be exterminated or not. At this price it will sell and DSLR will survive.

If the Nikon and canon couldn't release a full line up of their own Mirrorless lenses how will the 3rd parties ?

I think these lenses are results of maybe years of development which they have to release anyway, I have no doubt that they will jump to the mirrorless in the future.

Kazzaz: Please Tamron Jump to the Z mount.

@io-bg

I care more about quality not size, I have great experience with Tamron lenses.

I was a Flickr user for more than 11 years, and today thanks to smugmug I will end this relationship for good, to be honest I was using it as cloud service only.

I think 500px and Instagram killed flickr 3 or 4 years back anyway.

On article Panasonic Lumix DC-S1 review (1964 comments in total)

Good step by Panasonic, I used to own a Lumix Fz8, however while i was upgrading my gear I could not invest in the tiny microfour third camera from them and went to Nikon instead and i am happy Nikonian since then.

But if the L system proved itself as a capable system, I would definitely give it a try.

This is great news, not because the addition of the Eye AF which is great by itself, but because this means Nikon has changed and is going to give better software support and real updates for the cameras.

I hope next update will be better autofocus performance to overcome the disadvantages of the current autofocus system of the Z series.

Kazzaz: Okay but when we can see such amazing optics ? for the next 3 years there are no breakthrough lenses, or at least this is obvious from the roadmap plan that they have shared earlier.

I am a huge fan for Nikon, but they are keep advertising about how awesome the lens mount is, but all we can see is just a very normal and common lenses.

Yes so it easier to them to design shraper lenses, but for me as an end user, I got a lens which is okay while in the market. no one ever reviewed it said that it is a breakthrough lens.

There are similar or Sharper lenses, sigma 50mm or the Tamron 45 .. even the new lineup from canon to be honest is great too.
